Putting with the elbows pressed against the ribs. - Page 2

post #19 of 22
Thread Starter 

Update on putting with this method. It seems to work.

 

Not only am I putting with my elbows pressed lightly against the ribs, but I am using a spine motion for the stroke. This seems to let me putt as far as I want, but control the distances much better.

 

Putts per round dropped by at least 4 strokes, and it feels a lot more secure, and feel like I can focus more on the putting keys.

 

I also thinking of using a similar stroke for close up chips (5 to 20 yards).

I had a putting horror show last week. 3 putted then 4 putt,3 putt,3 putt in a row.
I don't feel particulary nervous over putts but I do putt inconsistently. Always said to myself putting is more mental not mechanical.
Clearly I needed to investigate. After a putting session at home noticed my putter could be very wafty going back.
Stumbled upon this advice and did more research. Tucked my right elbow in and hey presto it creates a nice anchor point. Also a different feel and sound off the putter face and like other golf shots hitting the sweet spot on the putter added easy pace.

This was on my carpet at home but I could miss left a lot. I rarely pushed a putt. I'm really looking forward to testing this in a round.

Seems to get cleaner contact, because as you noted it does really stablize things. Now, I'm experimenting with a slower longer stroke by turning with my body. I am trying to hit about a degree up as well.

There's also a recent putting thread you should check out regarding acceleration/deceleration.

Let us know how you progress, it will be great to compare notes along our journey.
